The car experiences greater acceleration from a steeper incline (i.e. you added energy to the system by raising the ramp). The car can then go further due to the increased force (F=ma).

There are more variables to determine this correctly. How much rolling resistance? How smooth is the surface? Weight of the toy? If the toy does not roll easily it could just sit on the ramp and never move at all. If rolling the toy across carpet it will go less distance then on a surface that is smooth as glass.

yes This is because of the fact that gravity is a measure of acceleration. The longer the car has to accelerate the faster is will be by the end.

You CAN stop on a freeway ramp. Sometimes it's mandatory, like when the ramp signal is red, or if there is a traffic jam on the freeway. You should not stop on a freeway ramp if you can help it because you are risking a ear end collision.

It will go faster because if you have a small/non-steep ramp the car will go slow and the ending point wont be that far, but if you have a ramp that is bigger/steeper the car will go faster and the ending point will be far.

The input force would increase as the height of the ramp increased. It wouldn't matter the distance. Ask me another one.

yes it does

The effort needed would increase.

More force will be required to push an object along the ramp.

yes

One factor is the height of the ramp. The higher the height of the ramp the further the car travels. Another factor is the surface of the ramp. With a rough surface on the ramp e.g sand paper the car travels a short distance. With a lubricated surface on the ramp e.g Vaseline the car will travel a very long distance.

This is a bad question.

You are an avid skateboarder and just skated down a ramp. You want to find the distance you traveled. The height of the ramp at its tallest part is 40 inches and the horizontal length is 81 inches. Calculate the distance, to the nearest whole inch, you traveled down the ramp.
